Linz might once again get screwed...

Well they have their Topstar for this year: Victoria Azarenka. However, Azarenka is still playing in Beijing and she played an awful lot of matches this year. Will she really turn up for this MM? Petra Kvitova, the defending champion, also signed up but wasn't allowed to enter because Linz can only get one Top 10 player with Azarenka having priority due to her ranking. If Azarenka doesn't show up, they would've had the chance to give a last minute WC to Kvitova. However, they already used all their WCs, giving them to Petkovic, Ivanovic and Mayr-Achleitner ().

Do you guys think Vika will show up for this? And personally I don't like this 1 Top 10 player maximum. If Petra wants to play this event, let her play

N. VAIDISOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY
D. HANTUCHOVA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - E. VESNINA - E. SVITOLINA
J. GOERGES - A. WOZNIAK - Y. WICKMAYER - E. BOUCHARD - Ka. PLISKOVA

Ivanovic was not top 20 at the end of 2011.

Re: Linz might once again get screwed...

I have the feeling she will show up and then will withdraw from her QF or so

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Yes, there's a bunch of promo stuff scheduled with her as well (some training with Vika event and stuff like that) so the organizers must be very sure she shows up.

And yeah, that rule is stupid, I don't really see why it's even needed. It's not like the Top 10 players would play every little International if they were allowed.

I just keep thinking that they killed the sport when they delated the European indoor swing for the Asian fuckery

Oh.

But Kvitova could get a Top20 WC if Azarenka withdraws?

Re: Linz might once again get screwed...

Azarenka is wise in playing a proper indoor event prior to the YEC. Not sure if she'll be fully committed all the way, but she'll surely show up if not only to get a couple of indoor matches under her belt.

Well, it's not like crowds were soo after watching Azarenka anyway. Ivanovic is there, so her alone will draw many teenage boys to buy tickets.

it's all about the player's party. They need to bring back the dresses from 2 years ago.
